Peek inside Fifty Shades star Jamie Dornan's luxury LA home, on market for £2.4m

Northern Ireland actor Jamie Dornan has put his sprawling LA home on the market for around £2.4m ($3.19m).

The Fifty Shades star bought the glass house back in August 2016, and after an unsuccessful attempt to rent it out for £10,000 a month, has put it up for sale.

Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Jeff Kohl - who is selling the property on behalf of luxury estate agent The Agency - declined to comment on why it was being sold, but did say Dornan is now primarily based in Europe.

The Holywood actor looks set to make a tidy profit on the house, having purchased it for around £2.2m ($2.84) two years ago.

The 2,510 sq ft residence has four bedrooms and four bathrooms, with the master bedroom opening out onto the pool.

Located on Nichols Canyon Road in the Hollywood Hills, it was originally built in 1959 and underwent an overhaul under the eye of architect Val Powelson in the Sixties.

The property's listing reads: "Natural light from the distinctive glass box atrium floods all common areas of the house, while the atrium's water feature resonates tranquillity.

"Further epitomizing the indoor-outdoor California lifestyle, floor-to-ceiling glass doors open directly to the expansive pool and spa area with a substantial adjacent deck and fire pit, perfect for entertaining."

Jamie Dornan is married to film composer Amelia Warner, and they have two children.

His breakout role came in BBC crime drama The Fall, playing serial killer Paul Spector, before coming to international attention for his portrayal of Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades movie series.

He is set to star in upcoming HBO project My Dinner with Herve, based on the life of French actor Herve Villechaize, featuring alongside Games of Thrones star Peter Dinklage.

Jamie is also set for a return to the BBC when he takes the lead in a version of Eugene McCabe's Death and Nightingales. It will see Dornan reunited with The Fall creator Allan Cubbitt, with the adaptation set over the course of 24 hours in 1885 rural Fermanagh.

He isn't the only member of the Dornan clan hoping to get a good return on the property market. Last month his father, leading obstetrician Professor Jim Dornan, put his luxury Crawfordsburn property on the market for nearly £1m.
